The police are looking for a man who allegedly slugged a subway passenger in the face at the Queens Plaza station last week shortly after getting into a dispute on a Manhattan-bound M train.
Police said that the 25-year-old victim was traveling on the train at around 8:00 am on Thursday, May 18, when the suspect bumped into. The two men, according to police, got into a verbal dispute that ended once the victim exited the train and walked in the director of the station mezzanine area.
Soon after entering the mezzanine area, the suspect allegedly approached the victim from behind and punched him in the face causing jaw pain and a laceration to his noise.
The suspect fled the location in an unknown direction.
The suspect is described as a male with light complexion in twenties with a bald head, heavy set, last seen wearing a ripped black T-shirt, dark jeans and black sneakers.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477)
